  • Repeating EventShort Course: Six Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement

    Tue, Jul 07, 2015

    Distance Education Network

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Abstract: Learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a Six Sigma green belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial Engineer's green belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).

    This course is available on-campus and online.

  • 4D Blood Flow in the Human Heart: Optimal Vortex Ring Formation and Validation Challenges

    Tue, Jul 07, 2015 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Johannes Töger, Lund University

    Talk Title: 4D Blood Flow in the Human Heart: Optimal Vortex Ring Formation and Validation Challenges

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: Diastolic dysfunction, i.e. dysfunction of the filling mechanisms of the left ventricle (LV) of the heart, is a disease with poor prognosis even in its mild form [1] and new measures of diastolic dysfunction may improve patient care. During the early phase of diastole (filling) of the human heart, a vortex ring forms in the left ventricle (LV) downstream from the mitral valve [2, 3]. Features of the vortex ring has been shown to reflect overall cardiac function [3, 4] and may therefore give new insights into the pathophysiology of diastole.

    The full three-dimensional dynamics of the vortex ring can be imaged using 4D flow magnetic resonance imaging and mathematical post-processing by Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS), a flow analysis tool based on the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems (Figure 1). Furthermore, we have constructed a flow phantom for validation of 4D flow measurements of pulsatile flow (Figure 2) using particle imaging velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF), meeting the formidable design challenge of producing a pulsatile, physiological, fully three-dimensional and highly repeatable experiment [5].

    In vivo studies, healthy volunteers (n=23) and patients with heart failure (n=23) [6, 7] show that the healthy heart displays a matching between the volume of the vortex ring and the volume of the LV that is lost in heart failure. Furthermore, the mixing of blood in the vortex ring is increased in heart failure patients compared to healthy hearts, which may reflect the impaired diastolic function in the patients.

  • NL Seminar-Parsing with word vectors

    Fri, Jul 10, 2015 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Deniz Yuret, (Koç University / USC / ISI Visitor)

    Talk Title: Parsing with word vectors

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: We investigate the use of distributed word representations instead of word forms and parts of speech in syntactic parsing. Distributed representations are dense, low-dimensional, and real valued vector representations (embeddings) for words. Instead of ad-hoc feature conjunctions, we use kernels and neural networks for non-linearity, greatly simplifying feature engineering. We show that dense representations offer both computational and learning advantages compared to sparse one-hot vector representations. We introduce context vectors, distributed representations for word contexts, and show that they can replace or complement parts of speech in parsing models. We show that distributed representations give accuracies comparable to the state-of-the-art word form and part-of-speech based feature sets.
